The fourth in a series of Disney Princesses with Service Dogs!
Here’s Rapunzel with Complex PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder. Her service dog is helping her snap out of a very strong dissociative state, then providing tactile stimulation for comfort and grounding!
C-PTSD is a type of response to prolonged trauma (frequently in childhood). DID is a creative and adaptive response to severe trauma, where an individual’s brain compartmentalizes experiences into two or more identities. It’s a pretty incredible way of the mind coping with trauma.
Feel free to share to raise awareness and acceptance for people with disabilities and service dogs!
~Also, I’d really appreciate if you could donate to my service dog fundraising campaign here. I need to raise about $5000 by June! https://www.youcaring.com/ariensmith-759774 It would mean a lot!~
(P.S. My main disorders are both of these that Rapunzel has!)
This is rad!
